We are a small woman-owned and licensed home bakery incorporated in January 2020 to serve the Syracuse and surrounding areas with vegan baked goods.
After being furloughed during the COVID-19 crisis, Megan decided to pursue her dream business full-time and Fatcat Baking was born. Named for our very own little fatcat Loki, we pride ourselves on providing the vegan and dairy free community with delicious high quality baked goods.
What started out as a tiny kitchen business soon quickly expanded and now we provide vegan pastries to 7 local businesses on a weekly basis, from downtown to North Syracuse and a few places in between.
Thanks for checking us out! It really means the world.
Megan Mills & Alex Rydzak
Megan is a California native turned Syracuse resident by way of love, discovering a passion for baking along the way.
Alex was born in Albany and raised in the South before making a better-late-than-never homecoming here in the Salt City. When he’s not out snow shoveling, he works on the technology and business parts of the biz.
Loki- the fatcat himself.
Any time food hits the table in our household, this little fur baby is quick to make his presence known. Loki always expresses his displeasure at not being able to eat human food, even though he doesn’t really have an appetite for it.
Keep on being cute, Loki.
We are humbled to have been included in some local media coverage.
